A two-stroke diesel engine is arguably the most valuable asset on a vessel. That is why
it is vital that it always performs at its best, especially while at sea in unpredictable
conditions and harsh environments.
Mechanical wear, cold corrosion and under/over lubrication can cause significant
damage to the combustion section of an engine, resulting in substantial engine
maintenance costs and even catastrophic engine failure.
But how do you detect issues before they become big problems?
Stopping the engine or performing a major inspection and intervention to the cylinders,
pistons and cylinder head arrangements is not an option. A non-invasive method is
required to gauge the health of the cylinders and pistons inside the engine.
